The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a Web protocol for querying and updating data that provides a way to unlock your data and free it from silos that exist in applications today. OData does this by applying and building upon Web technologies such as HTTP, Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) and JSON to provide access to information from a variety of applications, services, and stores. The protocol emerged from experiences implementing AtomPub clients and servers in a variety of products over the past several years. OData is being used to expose and access information from a variety of sources including, but not limited to, relational databases, file systems, content management systems and traditional Web sites.
In this session we will build out a basic OData feed for the East of Toronto .NET User Group events that will be utilized in our future website. In the coming months we will build upon these services to expose our events in various ways.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
